SAML certificate

Hi,

I'm currently trying to implement SAML authentication on our Qlik Sense dev platform.

So I followed the steps described in the Knowledge Base, but I encountered difficulties on the SAML signing algorithm : I need to implement the SHA-256, which requires a certificate, but I can't find what certificate is needed, or where to upload it.

Can somebody help me on this ?

Best regards,

Martin.

@Martin22 

I will move this to the integration board instead.

Hello @Martin22 

The SP certificate used for SAML is the same as the one applied on the Qlik Proxy service

When it comes to SHA-256 with SAML, this certificate's private key cryptographic provider needs to be specifically "Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES Cryptographic Provider"

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Thank you for your answer, we're working on it.

Once we have the certificate, is there a specific folder where we have to paste it, so the virtual proxy automatically uses it ?

Best regards,

Martin.

Hello @Martin22 

You just need to import it in the Windows mmc console as described in the link, then indicate the thumbprint in the QMC. There's a video with the steps in the article I previously sent you.
